Any options that are specified are passed to cmp(1) or diff(1). If only file1 is specified, it is compared against a file with the same name, but with the extension removed. When both file1 or file2 are specified, either file may be compressed. Extensions handled by gzip(1): o z, Z, o gz, o taz, o tgz. Extensions handled by bzip2(1): o bz, o bz2, o tbz, o tbz2. Extensions handled by xz(1): o lzma, o xz, o tlz, o txz. ENVIRONMENT TMPDIR Directory in which to place temporary files. If unset, /tmp is used. FILES /tmp/zcmp.XXXXXXXXXX Temporary file for zcmp. /tmp/zdiff.XXXXXXXXXX Temporary file for zdiff.
